Don't know about you guys, but the stainless 336 is my idea of rifle perfection. It's a gorgeous firearm- in fact, the first 336 SS I ever saw is what sparked my Marlinitis. It's weather resistant. And of course, it has the reliability, durability, balance and inherent accuracy of the great 336, chambered for the most versatile, affordable, and pleasant to shoot cartridge in history. Plus, I have a sneaking suspicion that Marlin put some of their best figured stocks on their SS's. After handling many, I finally put in an order for one, and can't wait to get it. My 1960's 16.5" straight stock might be getting a tad jealous.

Anyway, who else thinks as highly of the 336 SS as I do? As always, pics please!!

Well, mine had rather plain wood which I replaced with laminate. I think the laminate is a better choice for a foul weather rifle. It's a good shooter and a keeper!

mt1761,

Surely you aren't boasting about a run of the mill stainless 30-30 ::)
You are talking about the exclusive (500 made) 336 SS-LTD in 35 remington with all that sweet talk...Right? ???
Yes, the 18 1/2" barrel, straight stock, Stainless 336, in 35 remington, is the cats meow.

Marlinitis ;D ;D ;D

The new gun shop right here in town has a 30-30 in SS that i have been eying since they opened. I let the owner that i wanted it but i would have to pay off some other debt 1st before committing. The only thing that bothers me about the gun is the fitting of the stock to the receiver, the wood stock out past the metal instead of being a flush fit where they meet. Otherwise i plan to own it in the next couple months if it is still there.

What was the difference in that SS LTD? I know it was a Davidson's edition. Wood looks great on that one Eli has. The metal part is the same?

Here is the 35 SS Jake spoke of earlier, and it's sister the 336 D. Both sweet little rifles. Two pics of the same rifles...

This is my 336M 30/30. I was told they were only made in the year 2000.

I bough it new, unfired about 4 years ago for $300.

For some reason my son thinks it belongs to him. ;D

The M was originally made in 2000 (hence the Romanian numerial). It was the daddy of the current SS.

I've seen some of the big chain stores advertising M models the last couple years though. I don't think they are surplus originals as they went pretty quick. Maybe a re-badged model? Maybe with birch stocks now or something? Marlin has used the same designators often over the years so it can be tough to sort it out.

Sidespin, Nice rifles. Maincat, awesome rig man!!!

I lost my sights and have a 38mm sitting rock bottom. I did a slight trigger job and wolf hammer spring for a 2 1/2lb pull
and an action smooth as teflon coated glass. My other is laminate with ghost rings. I'm down to two.
